Re: what can I do w/ red lentils?

I would make Dahl, but perhaps that is curry to you.

Cook them in chicken broth (double the amount of lentils) and cumin, salt, pepper and a little cayenne. Serve over rice.

Stuff an acorn squash. Chop it in half, gut it, and bake it face down on parchment paper at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes (give or take depending on the size of the squash). While it's cooking, caramelize some onions and then toss in some peppers. When that is cooked and the squash is done, mix the onions and peppers in with the lentils. Season the squash to taste (I personally like to use a bit of brown sugar and some smoked paprika) and fill it with the lentil mix. If you like, you can also dice some fresh spinach and use that as a bed inside the squash for the lentil mix.

Make some seasoned brown rice with a nice carrot and onion dice in the rice. (Saute carrots and onions, add the rice, add the broth, bring to a boil, turn low, cook covered 50 minutes) Make the lentils in broth in a separate pot. Squeeze a bit of lemon over the lentils when done. While it's all still nice and hot, toss in some finely diced zucchini or even cucumber, adjust salt and drizzle some nice EVO over it all.

It looks pretty, tastes fresh and I have gotten tons of compliments on this dish. It serves well hot, lukewarm, room temp and cold. Make it your own.

I add lentils to my rice and cook them together. Now I have a rice maker and put it in there. It is so good and the lentils cook in the same time as the rice.

Lentil stew. We use brown lentils as that is what we have locally. I imagine red lentils work just as great.
